Pros

The benefits package is comparable to other large organizations. Very metro accessible, Nice offices.

Cons

Managers do not seem to know anything about the jobs their staff's do. Raises and promotions are given out to people that are friends with management. The organization reorganizes every year as a way to legally cut staff without firing them. Most staff is required to reapply for their jobs every year during these reorganizations. Management is never cut, only non manager and blue collar workers. Everything is designed to protect upper management and most of the important work is not being done anymore in favor of tap dancing for insurance company ads on their products.

Advice to Management

Stop being paranoid if a person under you is doing good work. Promote people based on skill and experience rather than how often their managers eat lunch with them.

    Average. Lack of leadership hinders the organization to continue to be relevant in the future.
